If it's a USB keyboard, the support is fairly new, and you should
probably make sure you're using FreeBSD 4.8 (or an even more
up-to-date 4.x, if you can). Another thing to check is whether
ctrl-alt-del does anything. If you configured devices during the
install, go back to the install disks, boot with them, and make sure
you *didn't* disable the keyboard device.

Not inappropriate so much as inadvisable. It was never officially
created, and so most people don't get it. The useful sources of
support are listed at
